Marcus (Mordche) Stecher's Birth and Mother's Death Record from JRI-Poland

Note: The surname Schmatz does not match Markel in the New York mariage data below


1879 death record from JRI-Poland searched for on September, 2018 shows that the name is Feige nee:Schmatz Stecher.
She is the wife of Isak Stecher (father of American Marcus Stecker)

Marcus Stecher (Stecker) 1900 New York marriage
Grooms mother's name of Feige Markel  is probably an error


Marcus Stecher - Sadie Albert marriage information
NB: The mother of Marcus Stecher is listed as Feige Markel for New York Marriages.
This surname Markel may be an error and does not match maiden surname Schmatz
which is
listed in the JRI-Poland death record of Feige Stecher (Marcus/Mordche's mother)
